I’ve been working at Sheffield Children’s for almost 20 years, and I’ve been a consultant on our Cancer and Leukaemia Ward for more than a decade. It’s a fantastic place and there’s a great sense of camaraderie and friendship within our team.

My role involves looking after patients, I enjoy meeting them and helping make them better. On a simple level, that often means making it fun for children to come to the hospital wherever I can.

The ward at Sheffield Children’s sees between 90 and 100 patients every year from across South Yorkshire, Lincolnshire and North Derbyshire as well as undertaking bone marrow transplants for patients from further afield.

The treatment offered at Sheffield Children’s includes chemotherapy for both inpatients and outpatients, surgery and high-dose chemotherapy for patients with solid tumours or leukaemia.

Thanks to donations to The Children’s Hospital Charity, we have recently moved onto a new state-of-the-art ward. It’s brilliant, complete with bright, open spaces, bigger bedrooms and views over Weston Park.

Working on the new ward feels amazing. It’s a privilege to work here at Sheffield Children’s and I’m very proud to be a part of such a talented and dedicated team.
